Actor Olarewaju James, popularly known as Baba Ijesha has been granted bailout of the police custody. The actor has been arrested and under police custody since April for allegedly having sex with a minor, daughter of comedian, Princess. However, he has been granted jail today, May 17th, on health grounds by the magistrate who was at the State Criminal Investigation Department Panti to review some cases in a bid to decongest the police facility.
His lawyer, Adesina Ogunlana, in a statement on Monday, May 17, said, “He has been granted bail about one hour ago. We are working to perfect the bail. He was granted bail on health grounds. He has not been released. He will be released after his bail conditions have been met.”
